Word For The Day, Monday, 6/3/14
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
rident; adj. laughing; smiling; cheerful.

Rident came to English in the early 1600s from the Latin rīdēre meaning "to laugh."
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
